This is the second book of the Preservation Resource Center trilogy (Life in an Epic City, 2006, and • NEW ORLEANS • Days and Nights in the Dreamy City, 2013).

This publication continues to explore the cultural dynamics of the city's historic neighborhoods. Shotgun houses and neighborhoods have an exceptional power to evoke stories and emotional memories. The 130 images by 55 photographers present an experience common to almost all New Orleanians - family, friends, and life centered in a shotgun house. More than 50 narrators share their bonds with the house as children, students, renters, owners and caretakers. This is us. This is how we lived in the past, live today, and - at its best - hope to live in the future.
